Re: Rainfall error. Can't open Cumulus. Can't open Diags

Steve is the expert and I can't compete with him, but as someone who has used Cumulus 1 for many years, perhaps I can make a few suggestions... With Cumulus 1, a corrupted weather diary file (data\log.xml) could stop it starting, so try renaming the weather diary file (e.g. to data\logTEST.xml in ca...

Re: Instromet Datalogger Question

You have reminded me that there are two current versions of 1.9.4 for Instromet users depending on which version of the logger you have, perhaps you had the wrong one. Steve, your memory is right, see Wiki http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/Cumulus_Versions (I have not checked if download links in Wiki a...

Re: Cumulus - manually edit faulty data?

The "Last Rain" was ... How Do I change it? What file uses this data? The FAQ in Wiki has the answer to both those questions. http://wiki.sandaysoft.com/a/FAQ#.28Invented_rain.29_Error_in_date.2Ftime_of_.27Last_Tip.27 In Cumulus 1, the last tip date/time is shown when you hover over the b...

Re: FTP failure.

Thank you for your interesting suggestions I have dug out my old XP laptop, installed cumulus, and lo and behold everything runs normally. Glad to hear, I have helped. If you work out what about Windows 10 pro is causing problem, please share it. I found the event log in my PC was reporting errors ...

Re: New Record? Post here.

A few mm of rain yesterday (20th July) Yesterday's tiny bit of light rain here stopped my consecutive dry days from moving from 49 to 50, although no effect on dying garden. A record in the single decade since my weather station started. got a new record of consecutive dry days; 15. CMX doesn't ack...

Re: wmr 200 problem with datalogger

I know nothing about Oregon stations, but my Windows 10 PC has apparently stopped being able to read from my Fine Offset much (but not all) of the time (the problem is present whether Cumulus is left running or stopped/restarted). Luckily, I have my late mum's Vista machine and have found that can r...

Seems possible, as widely used as I suspect jQuery is, there may be updated versions of this/these available. That's as far as I've gotten...

Re: Windows 10 upgrade

I haven't had a single issue on Windows 10, with Cumulus or any other software. I echo that for all my software including Cumulus 1, although I had an operating system hiccup re its default language. So no USB change in this update for me. https://www.manula.com/manuals/pws/davis-kb/1/en/topic/wind...

OK, found a copy of version 1.2!

To stop hi-jacking the other thread, I thought I 'd start a new one for the Top 10 page. You can see my version here . The source code is here . This was inspired by Dans (captzero - brisbaneliveweather) pioneering work , though I developed my code independently. Mark, I've obviously looked at your...
